Great SoCal Getaway

Great location, great facility for a younger professional looking to spend some money and have a great place to stay at. All the staff are super friendly and helpful. The Bungalow Bar is outstanding!

Disaster

The LosAngeles Marathon finish line was in front of the hotel. I had no knowledge that the marathon was going to be there. When I complained to the hotel itself they stated they notified others ahead of time but did not have my email contact to notify me. I was unable to access the beach and was gridlocked in traffic when I did try to leave the hotel to get some peace. There was a spotlight shining in my room for 24 hours while the marathon was there. People that did not have rooms in the hotel were walking in and out of it using the facilities making it difficult for the paying customers to have full access to the facilities. The road was blocked and there was no beach access unless I walked about a mile down the road. For the price we paid for the room completely unacceptable.

Amazing Stay

The service was impeccable- very friendly and accommodating. The location was perfect and centrally located near other Santa Monica attractions. It was nice having nightlife at Bungalow right there within the hotel. All and all, an amazing time.

good family trip

Hotel is old but and not very luxurious as we had expected. Bathrooms were very basic with old sinks. Definitely needs a lift

Visit SoCal

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location, close to the Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica pier. I enjoyed using the bikes for a long ride along the beach. Fun trip. Will be back.

New Years Eve celebration

A bit expensive but a wonderful stay and a festive atmosphere. We loved it ! (there was a wedding that night so valet parking was a bit messy)

Always an oasis of comfort.

Location is perfect on Ocean Drive, facility is top notch, service is professional, restaurant/bar is comfy. When in LA on business, we stay here whenever we can, and the drive downtown is easy on I-10. Only flaw was an overstuffed pillow!

Check In Delay

Had to wait 2.5 hours to check in when my reservation stated 1:00pm check in time. Was told because previous people wouldn't leave their room or check out and I should call ahead next time? Why is this my problem if the hotel has stated I could check in at 1:00pm? How does "calling ahead" work if I'm driving from a 2 hour distance? Not 5 star treatment.
